Today, I had a twinge of an old familiar feeling. I had class until 8 o clock and the professor kept us the whole entire time. So, having only had 640 calories up to 3 o clock and nothing since then, I was pretty hungry when I left school. So what I have dubbed "my burger king" is on the way home. It always smells so good when I drive by and I get the aroma of them cooking whoppers. Honestly, I have not noticed that smell at all since I started this new lifestyle, but I guess my hunger made me more cognizant of that smell when I drove by. It made me think back to the bajillion times I had stopped there and gotten the trusty Number 1 as either a meal or a snack or an emotional mop or any other litany of reasons. I have at times stopped there twice in one day. Don't worry there was no danger of me stopping tonight. I am past all that, but what it did do was make me curious how many calories I had eaten there every time I got the trusty Number 1. So when I got home, I checked. And wow folks. wow. Trusty Number One, medium size, is get this, 1400 calories!! I was shocked! By today's standards it is an incredibly high amount. I don't hit that number till supper time these days! Hell some days, I don't hit it at all! My gosh I have to wonder if I have possibly eaten a million calories at Burger King!
Today was an exceptionally good day. I had my usual menu so I won't even type out breakfast, lunch and snacks today. I will give some of my peeps props for suggesting that my tuna be replaced with almonds. I did find some habanero flavored almonds made by Blue Diamons that I love!! And they seem to help me keep my appetite under control. They are a welcome addition too. I was getting into a afternoon snack rut.
Well it waited a little longer this time around, but the anxiety of having to wait for weigh day set in today. I just can't wait and I still can't get 259 out of my head. I have really stepped up my activity level of late and my calories have been pretty much spot on and I seriously feel skinnier, whether rationally or not. One of my most recent NSVs is pretty funny really. Kathy and i have the smallest kitchen known to man. So for both of us to fit in there and try to get around each other used to be pretty much impossible. We had to do some major squeezing. Well as of late, we actually fit past each other without any internal injuries. It is great!
Well I am gonna get off here and get to bed. We had to have a long talk with Lauren regarding her talking in class that has netted her detention. I am worn out after all that.
